The eighth issue of Spacing is about to hit the streets. On Wednesday, Feb. 21st, the new issue will go on sale at the newsstands, followed by our release party the next day (Thursday, Feb. 22nd) at the Gladstone Hotel. Subscribers should have already started to receive the issue.
The cover section of the winter-spring 2007 issue takes a close-up look at our intersections and what our crossroads reveal about our city — Markham & Lawrence, Gerrard & Coxwell, Allen & Eglinton, Albion & Finch, Richmond & Sherbourne, among others. Spacing contributors explore how some communities are experiencing gentrification and rehabilitation, and how other neighbourhoods were planning disasters from the start.
The issue also features:
• the introduction of John Lorinc‘s City Hall column
• the organized chaos of our traffic lights
• the colour-combinations of subway station platforms on the Bloor-Danforth line are explained
• what happens when you send a letter to a park
• rankings of the best toboggan hills in the city
• Shawn Micallef’s Toronto Flaneur column
Contributors include: Ed Keenan (Eye Weekly), Sarah Hood (co-author of The Unknown City), Liz Clayton, Amy Lavender Harris, Todd Irvine, Joe Wilson, Dan Yashinsky, Steve Brearton, plus articles by Spacing editors Dale Duncan, Dylan Reid, Anna Bowness, and Lindsay Gibb. The pages come to life with the work of Sam Javanrouh (Daily Dose of Imagery), Rannie Turingan (Photojunkie.ca), Adam Krawesky (inconduit.com), Bouke Salverda (aidanfotos.com), Payam Rajabi (colourblind.ca), Tanja Tiziana Burdi (doublecrossed.ca), Jerrold Litwinenko (photosapience.com), illustrators Todd Julie, Matt Daley, Marlena Zuber, and Joe Ollmann.
